The Biogerontology Laboratory in the ANZAC Research Institute is the laboratory component of the Centre for Education and Research on Ageing (CERA) at Concord Hospital. The Biogerontology Laboratory performs research into the biology of ageing and age-related diseases with a major focus on the effects of old age on the liver and the cells of the hepatic sinusoid. Our objective is to develop strategies to delay and prevent diseases of old age.
